    Be very careful when you go to give the next round of fluids. Check her crop to make sure it's mostly cleared, if it has, then check her vent. Once you have checked her vent, then give fluids. I say this because handling them when they have a crop full of fluids can cause them to vomit and aspirate. Does the way I said that make sense?

    Ok, sure it makes sense, but to be honest I tried to feel her crop and didn't know if its empty or not.

    This is the video:

    Okay, she looks pretty perky, so maybe give her 90 minutes before the next tubing and then check her vent *before* you tube again. Do you have calcium?

    If your vet said to give 1ml, then that's what you should give if she has a stuck egg.

    I will check her vent before giving the next round of fluid, for now she opening her mouth less than an hour ago.

    Just checked her vent, i felt the egg, also checked her crop and it seems not empty, so i just gave her 1 ml of this calcium treat.

    And i think i stressed her a lot after catching her.

    She is breathing normally now, i will leave her now and will go to bed, will be waking up hopefully after 4 or 5 hours, hoping she will lay the egg before that time.
